Rabbi Greenspan’s Writings and Commentarys, Can Now be found on line-
“I am very excited to announce that many of the commentaries that I have translated over the years now appear and an exciting new website that I recommend to you called SEFARIA. Sefaria is on its way to becoming the Wikipedia of Jewish texts – it includes an entire library of classical text with translations of various commentaries. It is an amazing resource!! Sefaria includes a full Haggadah with my commentaries attached to the various texts so that you can actually see multiple commentaries on any given passage. To see the commentaries and the Haggadah visit the following site: ”
Sefaria is building the future of Jewish learning in an open and participatory way.
We are building a free living library of Jewish texts and their interconnections, in Hebrew and in translation. Our scope is Torah in the broadest sense, from Tanakh to Talmud to Zohar to modern texts and all the volumes of commentary in between. Sefaria is created, edited, and annotated by an open community.
Having digital texts enables us to create new, interactive interfaces for the Web, tablet and mobile which allow students and scholars around the world to freely learn and explore the interconnections among Torah texts.
Judaism’s core texts grew out of millennia-long conversations and arguments across generations. We envision creating an open space for ancient conversations to continue in new ways, with new participants, new questions, and new layers of dialogue.

We are justifiably proud of all that OJC offers in a formal sense, we know that no level of programming or religious services can ever beat that intangible sense of “connection” that all of OJC’s long-time members feel for each other and for the place many of us call our “second home.” It is our hope that you will come to know OJC for what it really is – not a place where you and your children have to go, but a place where you want to be. Experience our past events.
